Jodi House Walk for Brain Injury Saturday April 6, 2013

On April 6th, participants will gather at Leadbetter Beach to raise awareness about traumatic brain injury and stroke in the Santa Barbara community. Participants will choose a one-mile walk or 5k run. There will be food trucks, music, activities, and exhibitors on site. All ages and abilities welcome.

A percentage of the proceeds from this walk will be allocated to Jodi House so we may continue to offer a pathway for brain injury survivors to recover and reconnect with their communities. Jodi House is completely dependent upon donations and sponsorships from within our community.

General information and how to register as a participant can be found on our Walk For Brain Injury website accessible through the BIACAL website at www.biacal.org or contact Hannah Jacobs at (805) 563-2882 x4 or hannah@jodihouse.org.
